Ladies, I have a tale of woe that you've all heard of. You see a Chanel and you think and think about it, but you pass, thinking you're doing the right thing. A year later...you are still thinking about the same bag and it's no where to be seen or found. I am asking for your help! Have you seen this bag anywhere for sale?

It's the black portobello with black tweed and kiss lock closure from 2009. Elusive but I'm hoping that you ladies can help!

Thanks in advance!

P.S. Thanks to Beach Bum for letting me poach her picture just for this purpose.

Your story gives me hope. All is not lost! I've been trolling the bay as well and coming up empty, so I thought I'd post and see whether there is some hidden trove of portobellos lurking on a website I'm unawares of!

Thanks for the encouragement!

I spotted 2 SOHO exclusive portobellos at the Tysons Corner, VA Chanel Boutique the other day. Not this same black on black but just sayin... :graucho:

Don't tempt me! I want a portobello so bad that I'm thisclose to caving, but I've waited this long, might as well wait a little longer to find my heart's desire!

Moral of the story is if it's not a classic, Get it because you can bet your life it'll be gone forever! Best of luck in your quest! X

Thanks purse-nality and Tartine for keeping your eyes peeled! I'm still holding out for black/black with tweed frame on the inside. Maybe I'll put up some reward posters in the near future since the bag is eluding me!
